FREE Real Estate Seminar – Buying & Selling in The Current Market

FREE REAL ESTATE SEMINAR!

Adam and Shawn are back hosting another Real Estate Seminar. This event will be held on April 4th at Old Crow Coffee Co in New West from 7:00-8:00 pm and we will have coffee/tea available for all attendees!

At this Seminar, we are going to be having a general open conversation where we can address any and all of your questions!

Eventually we will take you through a 5-10 minute presentation to show you the current state of the market for seller/buyers, but overall, we want to achieve an open discussion to make sure that you get all of your questions covered and have you leave with the knowledge/education that you came for.

This event is open to all types including those who’s next transaction will happen right away or in the future. This will be beneficial for both buyers and sellers and we will provide information on both condos and homes.

Shawn’s Deals of the Week (March 11 – 15)

Shawn’s Deals of the Week  (Mar 11 – 15)

Every week I will be posting 3-5 listings that I think are great investments for those who are looking to buy and hold, build, and move in. The neighbourhoods that I explore are:

  1. Vancouver West
  2. Vancouver East
  3. East burnaby
  4. South Burnaby
  5. North Burnaby
  6. New Westminster
  7. Surrey

Why are you doing this?

There are so many aspects to take in to account when finding the right investment property.  You want to look at location, price point, location of that exact property, the details of the home and any issues with the lot. Whether it’s sloped, at a high point on the block that allows for a view or whether it’s riddled with trees that make it near impossible to build on without going through a lengthy process with the city halls. I will try to narrow searches down for you to make the selection process easier.
